Our Second Cruise Starts In 218 Days And 2Hrs Time :)

Recommended Posts

Hiya

 

Just introducing myself - I am a bit new to this forum malarky!

 

This will be our 2nd cruise booked with Bolsover Cruise Club - we were recommended by several family members on both sides so they are clearly doing their jobs right!

 

We are traveling with Princess Cruises, Emerald in September.  11 nights sailing from southampton to spain, maderia and the canaries.

 

EEK!

Hi Marie, have a great time, hope you enjoy your second cruise, where did you go for your first?

Sailed from Barcelona and cruised around the Med for 7 nights on the Epic, NCL.  Our first experience was so fantastic we had to experience another cruise ASAP!  We went with our parents who like the NCL but perfer the 'traditional' cruising eperience more but they did say they woudl  use NCL again without hesitation.  We have booked with Princess this time as I hear they are very good.  :)

How was NCL Epic?  I recently saw another discussion about good looking and ugly ship designs with Epic falling in the latter category but despite the possibly ugly exterior, it always seems to have so many amazing facilities on board that make it seem worth giving a try.  I'm sure you'll love Princess.

Loved it!  Although it was my first crusing experience.  We went with my 60+ parents who are regular cruisers who have been on Princess, Celebrity X, Ocean Village and P&O to name a few!!!  They liked the 'relaxed' feel with NCL pride themselves on but missed they 'dressing up nights'.   

 

We didn't mind the ugly exterior..you dont notice it when your on the ship anyway  :rolleyes:   The interior is lovely and easy to find your way round.  The staff were amazing an mum commented that they were the best they have ever experienced on a ship.  Even though I am 40 next year I enjoyed the massive waterslides and the climbing wall :P

We never got to see the circus but we went to see the Blue Man Group who were truely amazing and sooo funny!  Give it a try!

I can imagine it being great.  I've cruised with NCL before but not on any of the newer ships and they all look amazing.  I saw a few reviews on here of the latest ship, Norwegian Getaway and that looked great too.  I hear there are 27 different dining choices on Getaway, which attracts me a lot as I like having a lot of choice.  

 

I think I'd love the waterslides to and just be a big kid for the entire cruise! :)
